This show has been commercially released as "Grateful Dead Movie Soundtrack"
There are some great parts to this and overall the show is pretty solid however, I do think there are better shows earlier in the year. Very nice to listen to and a keeper.

Subject: Other One
To visualize and hear spectacular sound on this Other One>Spanish Jam>HHTF Jam>Other One, Rent or buy the new DVD of The Grateful Dead movie and play the bonus songs on DVD #2 (this one listed simply as The Other One). Phenomenal sound quality here on all these bonus tracks. If you watched DVD #1 and noticed the substantial sound quality difference between the movie and the bonus footage on #2. Watch the documentary on DVD #2 "the making of the movie" interesting sound restoring/mixing techniques revealed while recovering these gems from the vault. Given the amount of work they put into restoring these bonus tracks this will be by far the best recordings you will hear of these select performances from this run. They mention another possible bonus DVD to this run/movie because they found so many fine performances of other individual tunes. Hell, in that case, choose one of the shows, remaster/mix and release one of the full shows on CD. My rating pertains to the incredible recording work and performances on The Dead Movie Disc #2.

Subject: The sleeper of the run?
This show could be the sleeper of the "farewell" run at Winterland. And, if you leave out Phil & Ned, and use some creative fading, the whole thing will just about fit onto 2 80-minute discs. 1st set is solid, nice to hear F.O.T.D. and I like the direction they were going with Jack Straw in the period. Excellent WRS, as well. Interesting stuff in the 2nd set, and I'd wager the Casey Jones sounds better here than it did on Steal Your Face. I think this show stacks up against some of the better shows from earlier in the year but may not get as much attention because it was part of this run.
